In conjunction with their UrbanScreen exhibition I Spy a City, three members of Flavourcel collective (Alia Hijaab, Josh Neu, and Lana Connors) visit Surrey Art Gallery to talk further about the development process for the project as well as their inspiration and unique approach to animation. Learn more about how each member of the collective interpreted the different sights and sounds of Surrey to inform their own artistic process, and how the collective has come to forge their own distinctive identity in the local contemporary art community.

Visitors are encouraged to remain after the talk to attend the drop-in launch of the Gallery's fall exhibitions.

No registration is required, though space is limited. To keep your visit safe, masks are required for those 12 years old and up. As we are expecting over 50 people for this event, you will be required to show your vaccine card or equivalent. See our Plan Your Visit page.

About the Artists

Flavourcel is an animation collective based in the unceded Coast Salish territories. Born out of a desire to break down the institutional barriers that limit animators and introduce play into their work, Flavourcel produces experimental animations in a variety of styles. From hand-drawn cell-shading to digital doodles, music videos, and gifs, each artist pushes the boundaries of the medium and challenges the preconceptions of how animated art should be made.

Flavourcel includes Harlo Martens, Kat Morris, Josh Neu, Julia Song, Alia Hijaab, Chhaya Naran, Gil Goletski, Laurel Pucker, Lana Connors, and Chris Strickler.
